Pros

I find it to be easy to use and very good for keeping our documents and matters organized. The integration with Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Word, and Adobe Acrobat is seamless.

In addition, whenever I have had occasion to work with their trainers and customer service personnel, they have been very knowledgeable and helpful. I highly recommend Legal Files.

Additionally, I found Legal Files did not overwhelm the user, which makes it perfect for small to medium sized law firms. Larger law firms may want more complex feeling programs.

Pros

I continue to be very impressed and happy with the software. They are constantly updating it with new useful features.

HS

Hamish S.

Ease of use, great customer service and tutorials, countless helpful features to help me run my practice (i.e. calendar, billing/invoices, time management).

Also, the interface is extremely user-friendly -- the customer service is excellent, but I very rarely need it because the interface is natural and the tutorials are great.

Heather H.

Cons

Documents are not arranged chronologically so it is difficult to find the most recent version.

ST

Steven T.

When transferring information from one file to another, it is difficult to transfer emails, you have to do them 1 at a time which is time consuming.

EH

Estela H.

Not everything is very intuitive about the software. Less experienced computer users have a hard time with it.

Cons

Wasted hours trying to make it integrated with QuickBooks, only to have PP blame Quickbooks for PP inability to integrate. I spent at least 12 hours and gave up the integration.

Since they have grown, they have lost some of their customer service.

Technical Support and Correction of Problems - Discovered a serious problem with the partial payment of invoices that does not allow a Client to make a partial payment to an invoice.
